Cobra MkIII

The Cobra MkIII, manufactured by Faulcon DeLacy, is an affordable multipurpose all-rounder and a popular choice for Elite Dangerous commanders.

For new players, this is a sensible and relatively inexpensive step-up from the starter ship (the Sidewinder). Piloting the Cobra MkIII, you’ll have the capacity to perform in combat, run cargo missions, evade interdictions and explore the vastness of space, each with a reasonable level of success. It’s flexibility allows you to sample the various facets of the game whilst deliberating your future career path. Priced at 349,720 credits, you’ll soon be able to afford this small, multipurpose vessel after a few successful missions.

Be sure that you can afford the insurance cost and key upgrades before you make the plunge!

The Cobra MkIII is a classic all-purpose ship found throughout human space. The model was first built in Lave Cowell & McGrath shipyard in Lave in 3100. Despite its age, it remains a popular ship for lone pilots who value its balance of carrying capacity and ability in combat.
